Chalk Valley History Festival. Axis and Allies Book Project.

Cobb's work is fascinated with the notion of actors and stage.
Growing up on a diet of war films, Cobb is particularly influenced by cinematic moments frozen in time.

His work searches for a timeless depiction, where everyday people transform themselves in response to costume and location. Each individual's passion for history goes far beyond the surface layer of a uniform. Attention to detail and obsession transforms each individuals into a parallel universe where time has stood still.

As part of a long term project, Cobb documents WW2 re-enactors in various locations and scenarios. 
Here civillian and military re-enactors are photographed in moments frozen in time.

Location: Chalk Valley History Festival, Wiltshire, UK.
